Sudan renews claim to disputed Fashaga area bordering Ethiopia

Sudan Military

Sudan on Sunday reaffirmed its ownership of the disputed Fashaga district on the border with Ethiopia’s war-weary Tigray region.

“Fashaga is a Sudanese land,” acting Foreign Minister Ali Al-Sadiq told visiting UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa Hanna Tetteh, according to a statement by Sudan’s foreign ministry.

Negotiations and dialogue are the best means to settle the dispute, the minister said.

The border area between Sudan and Ethiopia has been witnessing rising tensions and skirmishes between the two sides since September of 2020.

In December of 2020, the Sudanese army said it deployed strong reinforcements to the border area with Ethiopia and retook what it terms “the seized lands.”
